She loved stick games, Pow Wows, drumming and her native language. She also was known for her Indian Fry Bread. Bonnice was a member of The Eagles Lodge, The Moose Lodge and Faith Community Church. She was active in all three when her health allowed. She loved worship music, especially Elvis Gospel hymns. Bonnice also loved dancing and when a song she liked was played she was known to start moving to the music, especially the TWIST. Above everything family was her first love and was always spending time with grandkids and great-grandkids every chance she got.

She is survived by her daughters: Karrie (Jesse) Utz of Spokane, and Terrie Billups of Grand Coulee; her grandchildren: Nicollette Seylor, Levi (Eliza) Seylor, Jesse (Neshia) Billups, Tianna Billups, all of Grand Coulee and Terrill Sieker of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
